Gout is a form of arthritis which occurs due to high uric acid levels in the blood. It can be quite painful, and can even prevent you from moving around freely.
When there is increased presence of uric acid in the blood, the compound forms crystals which can accumulate in your joints and inflame them. If left untreated, this can lead to gout attacks and prevent you from walking.
The main symptoms of gout are joint tenderness and pain as well as heat, redness and inflammation in the joints. Gout is a chronic disease that can’t be treated effectively with pills, but luckily there’s a simple natural mixture which can help. Here’s how to prepare it:
- 1 pineapple
- A cup of tart cherry juice
- A small piece of ginger
- 1-2 teaspoons of powdered turmeric
Peel the pineapple and cut it on small chunks, then put them in a blender along with the ginger, turmeric and tart cherry juice. Blend well, then add the honey and pour the smoothie in a glass container.
Leave the mixture in your fridge for 10 days – during this time, it will solidify and become ready for consumption. If you’re suffering from gout or any other type of inflammatory disease, consume a teaspoon of the mixture every day and it should quickly eliminate the pain.
